Having a 6 month old means I am in the midst of the baby food jungle.. starting to introduce cereals and purees, which he is really loving and doing so well on them. I’d love to say I carve time out of my day to make all my own baby food but realistically, we all don’t always have the time and need to rely on prepared baby foods.  I set out to find as many safely packaged baby food as I could and interestingly enough – most of the baby food packaged in BPA Free packaging was organic.  Yay! Many of these brands you can find at your local health food stores or Whole Foods.  Some you can find at the grocery store (Like Sprout Organics and Plum Organics). I’ve had some luck finding brands at Babies R Us as well. So here is a cheat sheet for those of you who need a little extra help finding something right for you.

    Evenflo makes freezer trays (Evenflo Portion Freezer Tray) that claim to be BPA free. Also, another great resource for making baby food and the one that I still use even though my baby is eating table food is Super Baby Food. It is a nice and chunky book full of every kind of “food” info you could ever want!

    I’d add “Baby Led Weaning” by Gil Rappley and her website http://www.babyled.com to your resources. That is the resource I used with my second child for solids and it was great to bypass purees and spoonfeeding altogether – definitely made things easier when juggling multiple kids.

    Just FYI – I contacted Fifibear’s today, and the owner said she was on hiatus and wasn’t producing any products. She also said they were out of any stock.

    Earth’s Best organic glass jarred infant foods – are these not BPA free? Forgive my mommy brain but I thought all glass jarred products were BPA free.

    Thanks for your input!

    Hi Christine,
    The problem with glass is that while the glass jar itself is BPA Free – all glass is BPA free, however the LID is not. The inside of jar lids is coated with an epoxy lining that does contain Bisphenol-a. The amount of BPA that gets into jarred foods is variable and considerably less (I am assuming it’s less), so glass is a better choice. But I can’t tell ou they are 100% BPA Free which is why they are all missing from our list.

    I hope that clears it up! (I have permanent Mommy Brain by the way)
